brokeback mountain




there wasn't a dry eye in the house when the credits started to roll. you wanna know why? because of a shirt! that's fucking storytelling right there. that's fucking amazing.

listen -- there's a lot of shit going on right now in the media about how this is a gay love story and its controversial and all this and that. the truth is that this is an extraordinarily well-done movie in every way possible. literally, not a weak link. and when a movie like that comes along, you enjoy the hell out of it and thank your lucky stars that it all came together in the right way.

this is the best picture winner this year, and it should be. this is a great film; this is a film that is going to last.

i couldn't disagree with you more!

here's my take on the movie. i thought it was well-intentioned but generally overwrought, with some laughable performances. a disappointment.

no point in arguing this one, since its a matter of taste. like roger ebert says: you can't convince someone that something is funny or sexy. and just as such, i can't convince you why something should make you cry.
